Think outside the box
SO YOU are trying to fill a high priority role within the organisation. You have advertised on regular job boards, contacted your network for referrals and spent valuable time on LinkedIn and there is no one in sight. Sounds familiar. Have you considered that you may be looking for the impossible or the improbable? In times like this looking at what could be changed internally could give you more success. Consider salary benchmarking to ensure you are competitive, look at potential staff incentives and or conditions. For example an extra RDO on their birthday. I receive so much feedback from candidates in regards to their previous work places – the good and the bad. You may be very surprised how many candidates request to be presented to particular businesses due to their positive or innovative approach to further enhancing their work environment and culture. Does your current business culture attract those hard to find candidates?
